Golden greek earrings, 4th-3rd century B.C.

The anthropocentric concept of Ancient Greece leads to the development of arts parallel to the common ones such as sculpture or architecture, and the importance of marking the social and economic status makes the Greeks want to surround themselves with luxury and precious materials. Jewellery is born from the need to beautify the body, to enhance the human figure and its value, to seek beauty through the perfection of forms. Men used to wear rings in the form of a seal and women The solutions in terms of goldsmithing techniques are increasingly sophisticated, specializing in filigree, union of threads, in this case gold, forming closures, material effects and various decorations. Although Roman jewellery was initially based on the Greek influence, it soon distanced itself by creating its own designs, including pendants, earrings and cameos. This pair of earrings is designed in a circular shape, highlighting the rounded shapes and the incised decoration around the circle itself.
